Roughly 600 Sailors reported they were the victims of a sexual assault while in the Navy last year, according to Vice Adm. Scott Van Buskirk, chief of naval personnel. Van Buskirk is heading up a campaign during Sexual Assault Awareness Month to bring that number down to zero.

Van Buskirk says:

"We can get this right in our service. We can set the example of what is really acceptable behavior; what is a good professional command climate, how we set the right environment for the right behavior to occur and we can really get to a zero incidence."

April's campaign to stop sexual assault has four themes, according to the Navy.

  • Hurts One
  • Affects All
  • Prevention is Everyone's Duty
  • We Will Not Tolerate Sexual Assault

The campaign includes posters, educational tools, and videos like this one, called "Prevention is Everybody's Duty":
